Tell us about your book, The Collected Tabletop: Inspirations for Creative Entertaining.
Five years ago, I decided to act on my heart’s desire to write a book on entertaining and tabletop collections. In my interior design career, I have often been asked by clients to assist with their events. I love to cook and have always enjoyed doing floral arrangements—particularly using blossoms from our garden. My goal in writing this book was to inspire others to start collections, or use existing collections to design events for family and friends.
